Forest Bathing in Prospect Park

The Natural Areas Conservancy is partnering with Prospect Park Alliance to host a forest bathing event in Prospect Park.

Forest bathing, sometimes called forest therapy or nature therapy, is based on the Japanese practice of Shinrin-yoku. Forest bathing encourages connecting with nature. It is a low-intensity activity, focused on gently engaging mind, spirit, and body with the natural environment. The practice has well-documented benefits on health and stress relief.

Our expert guide will be Bibi Calderaro, who is a Brooklyn-based artist, educator, and certified forest bathing guide. Her approach is to view forest bathing as a way to improve the health of both people and nature.

This event is free and will take place rain or shine, but space is very limited and registration is required. If you would like to attend, we ask that you please commit to the entire 2+ hour event.

Meetup instructions will be emailed to you when you sign up.

This will not be a strenuous walk, but please bring comfortable shoes, weather-appropriate clothing, and water.

This event was made possible through support to the Natural Areas Conservancy from Con Edison.

Please see the registration link for more information about this event and the organizers.
